Product description

Review

Thrillers can so often lean on a fuzzy sense of "insanity" to justify a character's behaviour, but the handling tends to be superficial; here it proves devastating. This is already one of my favourite books of the year. (Irish Times)

Cunningly told . . . The author's cunning deployment of information keeps the reader guessing. (Financial Times)

Alyssa Sheinmel's writing is so true, her characters so real, that they live on long after the last page is turned. (New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice)

A compelling and beautifully told story (Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces)

A tense and terrific read (Natalie D. Richards, author of One Was Lost and What You Hide)

As a narrator, Hannah is as irresistible as she is unreliable . . . Sheinmel is clear that her aim is not to educate about mental illness - but there's a journey of discovery here, nonetheless. (Teach Secondary)

A great story full of mystery, heartbreak, and hope (Jennifer Shaw Wolf, author of Dead Girls Don't Lie and Breaking Beautiful)

Intense, compelling, and wholly original (Kerry Kletter, author of The First Time She Drowned)

This compelling character study begins like a thriller-the mystery of what happened to her friend Agnes draws considerable suspense... it becomes a nuanced exploration of mental illness (Booklist)
